Little Known Ways to Help Preventing Diabetes with Maple Syrup

Based on the latest studies of US researchers, it has been found that
maple syrup can significantly reduce the growth of some types of cancer
cells. Studies also showed that it can also considerably decrease the risk
of diabetes.

Evidences have been discovered pointing to the fact that maple syrup has
thirteen previously unknown antioxidant compounds. These antioxidants have
special properties that make them very effective against cancer, diabetes,
and bacterial infection.

Maple Syrup as an Anti Diabetic Food

Maple syrup contains high levels of phytohormone and abscisic acid.
According to research, this type of acid is a natural defense in
controlling diabetes and other metabolic syndromes.

The acid is effective because it has the potential to encourage the
release of insulin through the pancreatic cells. It can also enhance the
fat cell’s sensitivity to insulin. The studies on maple syrup and its
effects on diabetes have been reviewed by experts. The results of these
studies were revealed before the American Chemical Society in San

The Anti Cancer Potential of Maple Syrup

A study by researchers at the Universite du Quebec a Chicoutimi, published
in the Journal of Medicinal Food, implies that maple syrup can be more
effective than broccoli, blueberries, carrots and tomatoes in
significantly slowing cancerous cell growth in the brain, prostate and
lungs and somewhat less significantly in the breast.

The Best Anti Cancer and Anti Diabetes Food

There is no doubt that maple syrup is the favorite of everyone. This is
probably the best anti cancer and anti diabetes food today. The studies
have shown that the syrup could be more effective than broccoli,
blueberries, tomatoes, and carrots in fighting cancer growth.

Further testing also revealed that maple’s syrup extracts are more
effective compared to maple sap. For fighting cancer and diabetes, experts
suggest that dark colored maple syrup should be used. Dark syrup has high
color oxidation which makes it more potent against cancer and diabetes. So
if you want the best anti cancer and anti diabetes food, then maple syrup
is your answer.
